Ok so today is the day that Milan will take on Arsenal at the San Siro for the second leg of the Champions League. As the title said I am simply bustling with excitement and I really can't wait for this game.
I have a whole bunch of friends coming over for a pre-match braai/barbeque and then we will all cram around the TV engrossed in the game; both Arsenal and Milan fans together. This time there won't be any Man Utd moments like in the pub. hehe. For those of you who don't know what happened... check out the link
Anyway, I am not totally in denial about this game, I do realise that Milan are in a REAL delicate state of mind and they have suffered immensely from fatigue and injuries. However, I have watched Arsenal too and they are far from the team they were at the start of the season and we have to take comfort in the fact that Milan always lift their game in Europe.
Robin Van Persie is back and he is a threat no matter how long he has been out for, while Milan really need to control Hleb and Adebayor.
The players need to find that passion and determination that saw them win last season. The fans are 200% behind the rossoneri and even if we are not at the stadium we will still be singing in full voice in the comfort of our own homes.
It will no doubt be a delicate game and any draw with a goal will see Milan out so the pressure is on but so be it. We have done this before against Bayern Munich and this will by NO means be Maldini's last Champions League game!!
